The on-site training hub model
An on-site training hub is a physical facility which enables potential entrants to become site and employment ready. The hub would ideally be located within a large housing development or infrastructure project.
Training hubs are aligned to the construction programme to enable training to be matched to employment opportunities. The model encourages collaborative partnership working with a focus on benefits to local communities.
In working collaboratively with Jobcentre Plus, local community groups, training providers and through the construction supply chain it is possible to design training programmes for those wishing to enter the construction industry which give the best possibility of gaining employment.
Through the fund, it is envisaged on-site training hubs will design programmes focused on those wishing to join the sector from full-time education, those who are currently unemployed, and those wishing to switch careers.
